The 2018 College Gridiron Showcase & Symposium will take place January 6 – 10, 2018 and is the FIRST all-star event of the 2018 college football post-season. The showcase and symposium provides exposure and education for top college senior football players from around the country. The players are selected by a panel of football experts. Players will come in for 5 days and 4 nights to be evaluated by professional football league scouts. The players will receive professional coaching, mentoring, life coaching and seminars that will benefit them as they move forward in their professional lives in or out of football.
We are the first all-star event to implement an OTA style format for football professionals. Our format showcases the player through practices and a controlled scrimmage to scouts and executives from top professional leagues such as the NFL and CFL. The players also attend meetings, practice, perform individual drills, 1 on 1’s, team drills and in many cases have personal interviews with the scouts and executives from these professional clubs.
Our event also contains a strong professional football education symposium component. Athletes attending our event are provided education through seminars relating to Financial Education, Life as a Professional Athlete, Player Expectations (on and off field), first-hand accounts from former NFL rookies, social media responsibilities, and more.
